How to Make Simple Syrup

Simple Syrup is one of my favorite things to make to sweeten beverages such as Sun Tea. It is very simple, very easy to make, but I am so surprised at how many people don't know how!

I prefer it because it is a syrup and blends into the beverage. Nothing against sugar being served, but sugar does not blend in well to cold drinks!

How to Make Simple Syrup


I use one to one proportions so I use 1 cup of sugar to 1 cup of water. You can change that to preferences such as 3/4 cup sugar to 1 cup water. I use a small pan to make my Simple Syrup in.


Add one cup of sugar. I used organic sugar which is brown, but if you want to use white sugar, that is fine.


Add one cup of water.


Over medium to medium high heat, bring the sugar and water to a boil. You need to watch your pan so the syrup does not boil over! I let mine boil for 2-3 minutes.

Take the syrup off of the burner and let cool. Feel free to add it to your beverages! What you don't use can be refrigerated for about a week.

Super simple!

Thanks for reading!
